So how late have any of you booked a cruise ? I booked one last May a month before (I was leaving a job, and had to use vacation days before I left). It was perfect; went on a cruise, gave my 2 weeks notice, a month later new job. I did the e docs that time which were brilliant, and I cruised solo, with a fantastic last minute airfare and priceline hotel the night before. Very relaxing vacation on the Enchantment of the Seas.
